hi guys i have a problem with something rubbing against what feels like a lead cover. when i press down on the part shown the noise stops and engine sounds ok. has anyone come across this before? whats the name of this cover?
That is the heat shield for the exhaust/ particle filter/ catalytic converter/ turbo. There is nothing moving beneath it but mounting brackets do fracture due to vibrations. If a bracket has snapped off you may need to improvise.
This Is probably the part that has broken http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111345950368?s...1423.l2648 . The mounting lugs crack then brake causing the rattle. It is a common problem and citroen don't seem to be bothered about making an uprated part to stop the problem. Don't let it break away and rub on other parts.
Are we there yet????? No we fecking ain`t gggggrrrrrrr

The heat shield was missing on mine when I bought it. I've run it without the shield for 15 months and had no issues other than a failed oil cooler this week. I suppose the missing shield could have contributed to that.
thanks for the informative reply's guys its appreciated, i'm going to look for a replacement top heat shield as its sheared off and just replace like for like, if i cant find one is there anything wrong with repairing as the attached pic shows?
